Good Hair On the Go Giveaway: Drybar Travel Kit

There are a lot of false rumors about Dallas. We don’t ride horses to work. We don’t all own cowboy boots. We don’t each have a boob job. Sorry. Many of us enjoy a pair of worn leather booties as much as we do a pair of dazzling, mile-high pumps. But there’s something to the hair talk.

Truth is, Dallas girls like their volume. ShopTalk’s purse spills confirm it. Texturing spray in Merritt Beck’s bag, hairspray in Kendie Skeen’s bag, and a teasing comb in Rory Ashton’s bag. Perfect to add to the travel bag: Drybar’s Small Box Big Hair kit.

It’s got a mini, original formula shampoo and conditioner, the Southern Belle volumizing mousse, and a can of Money Maker hairspray. All for your own DIY blowout on the go. Everything’s TSA size-approved.

Enter here to win.

If you’re not interested in doing it yourself, head into one of the three Dallas salon locations. They also do lovely braids.

Get Glowing Giveaway: Mandarin Lip Crayon, Golden Gloss, Luminous Body Bronzer

Let’s ignore the fact that we’ll still be seeing temperatures in the 40s this week. It’s nearing the end of March and weather or not, let’s agree to move on from winter. Up next on our fair faces: everything from Estée and Aerin Lauder glow-y collections. In particular, I love Estée’s Pure Color Lip Shine crayon in Mandarin, Aerin Lauder’s Lip Goss in a shimmering Golden Kiss, and Estée’s Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid Bronzer with a sheer, pearly finish. (Perfect for giving pale legs a boost.) I’ve got one of each to give away to one winner.

Spring Beauty Giveaway: Becca Matte Lip Color in Eloise

Last week, the founder of Blushington beauty bar handed over a list of her five absolute favorite lip color shades for spring. Stila long-wear glosses in red and pink, a bright pink Kevin Aucoin stick, and a vibrant red from Julie Hewett made the cut. But my pick from her list? Becca’s  lipstick in Eloise, a “ballerina pink.” It’s a matte color with hydrating, wax-free formula in a thin, silver tube. I think it’s a flawless, barely-there pink for everyday wear. We’ve got three to give away.

Serious Skin TLC Giveaway: ESPA Optimal Skin ProSerum

Your skin is dry and cranky. Like Violet Crawley. We commiserate. Ours needs a boost, too. But we can’t enter this giveaway for ESPA’s Optimal Skin ProSerum ”super serum.” Apparently, already a hit in the spas in Europe, this elixir is just hitting the States. We can’t tell you the exact magic behind this particular potion, but we can tell you we’ve fallen head over heels with everything else from ESPA at the Joule. It contains “nourishing omega 3, 6 and 9, vitamins A and E and the proactive natural extracts turmeric, white lupin and sunflower” and is said to absorb into the skin quickly, brighten and even skin tone, shape up elasticity, and do some firming. Sounds like the recipe for a spring-fresh face. But you can tell us.

V-Day Giveaway: Read Between The Lines “For The Love” Print

I love every playful piece of paper designed by Read Between The Lines. Their “fruit cake” holiday cards, the boxed stationery sets, and the art prints, all of it. A collection of Valentine’s Day-worthy ones come in glossy foil-stamped letters formed into sweet expressions of affection. Like the one we’re giving away today: For The Love.

Way better than conversation hearts.
